Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch suited up again for his Oakland Tech high school football team while serving his one-game suspension this week.
A video posted on Lynch’s Instagram feed shows him in full Raiders pads at Oakland Tech’s football practice. In the video, he’s seen running out of the backfield while players from Oakland Tech’s defense attempted to tackle him.
It took what appeared to be five players to bring him down in one of the clips. The first video had Lynch sprint out of Oakland Tech’s backfield and bulldoze a player in the secondary.
Just like old times.

Karl Joseph misses practice
The Raiders could be without one of their top defensive backs Sunday.
Safety Karl Joseph did not participate in Thursday’s practice due to a groin injury. Details of the nature of the injury are unclear, but it’s possible he suffered it at some point during Wednesday’s practice. He was listed as a limited participant after having played all 62 defensive snaps last week versus Kansas City.
On Friday, the team will announce Joseph’s status for Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills when it submits its final injury report. Keith McGill II and Shalom Luani are the Raiders’ top backups at safety.
— Marquette King turned 29 on Thursday. The Raiders punter received an unwanted present with an addition to the injury report, being listed with a right groin ailment.
— Quarterback Derek Carr was named Week 7’s FedEx Air Player of the Week. He had 29 completions for 417 yards and three touchdowns in last week’s victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.
— Cornerback David Amerson (foot) and Gareon Conley (shin) did not participate in Thursday’s practice.
— Tight end Lee Smith (knee), tackle Marshall Newhouse (foot), linebacker Nicholas Morrow (ankle), linebacker Marquel Lee (ankle), and linebacker Cory James (knee) were limited in practice.
